When Conscience Charges Me with Guilt — Don Fortner
(Tune: When I Survey #118 — LM)
1. When conscience charges me with guilt
And Moses would my soul condemn,
With Satan’s accusations felt,
I look to Christ to answer them.
2. When in my room and place He stood,
Made sin — (O mystery of God!)
He ransomed me with His own blood,
And satisfied the holy God.
3. Now justice smiles, with mercy sweet,
And tells me I am reconciled.
Yes, truth and mercy run to meet
And kiss this sinful, mourning child!
4. I look to Christ upon His throne,
The mercy-seat, the throne of grace,
There interceding for His own.
My Advocate! He is my peace!
